When a person is applying for a job, it is the most crucial thing that he or she is doing. Applying for a job is not fun, and it will never be so in the future as well. Aspirants spend hours to fill the application form or prepare a resume so that they can qualify for a job. For job seekers, it becomes an uncertain situation when employers do not reply. Many people encounter mental health issues for just not getting a reply. Candidates feel that rejection is better than no reply. Well, let’s understand a few things regarding the reason behind this notion.
1. Builds a negative impression
Most importantly, after studying for so many years, if job seekers do not get a job, it is already an upsetting situation. In spite of all this, not getting a reply is more stressful. Waiting for days thinking to get a positive answer can increase the anxiety and stress level in people. One of the reasons why there is an increase in the rise of mental health problems is because of no replies from employers.
Not only that but also according to reports, it is said that around 44% of applicants who do not get a reply build a wrong impression about the company. Replying to applicants is significant even if it is a rejection. It shows how responsible the company is and does not have any bad impact on the aspirants.
2. Clear objective
When job seekers get rejected, they get a clear objective as and how to move ahead. If they do not get a reply, they keep waiting for that, which leads to a wastage of time. Giving a reply to job seekers helps them to work more and enhance their skills. As a result, when they approach a new company, the chances of getting selected are higher.
3. A calm mind
If an employer does not reply, the aspirants always have a disturbing mind thinking about the interview. Also, they might think that the interview was good for them and so they will get it. In the end, after waiting for months when they do not get a reply, it affects them a lot. That’s why; being an employer it is important to take out some time and send a response.
It’s an era to build relationships and leave a long-lasting impression of the company on everyone. Employers who understand the students’ state of mind and reply to them tend to create a good reputation in the market. Around 17% of people post on social media about the negative experience when it comes to not getting a reply. But if an employer considers replying, it can reduce aspirants getting affected by mental health. So, these troubled times have set the perfect tone and situation for collective growth and a little bit of compassion. Together, we can create wonders!
